Practical advices

Although this route is not demanding, it is worth preparing for it properly, so that nothing surprises you at any point. Start with the most important thing, which is your helmet. A good helmet is essential for your safety. Take care also of proper lighting, both front and rear. In addition to bike lights, equip your bike with reflectors so that you are highly visible on the road.


What else is worth taking with you on a trip? Make sure to pack a sweatshirt or a rail jacket in your backpack, in case the weather changes. It is also a good idea to bring snacks to give you energy during the trip. Protein bars or energy mousses work well.


If you plan to take visit the attractions along the route, you will need to leave your bike behind in some places. To make sure it is still there after the tour, be sure to bring a bike safety device such as a U-Lock or any bicycle lock.

    Start the trip in the representative place of Jarosław - on the beautiful Renaissance market square. Although it lacks the regular shape known from Italian cities, Zamość, or several towns in Podkarpackie, the buildings, especially the town hall, make up for this shortcoming. The market square reveals the great past of Jarosław as one of the important cities on the route from Krakow to Lviv, benefiting from trade. Near the market square is a large Greek Catholic Church of the Transfiguration with a prominent onion dome over the sanctuary, richly decorated inside with polychromes. The iconostasis also attracts attention. This church testifies to the city's past, which was also inhabited by a significant number of Ruthenians. Exit the market square via Jana III Sobieskiego Street, from which turn right onto Przemyska Street. Next, after the viaduct, exit onto Tarnowskiego Street. After approximately 1.5 km you will reach a roundabout under the overpass of national road no. 77 – go straight through it, choosing the exit towards Lublin and Bełżec. Shortly after, you will cross the Franciszek Przysiężniak Bridge, a memorial to the independence and anti-communist activist. This road will take you to a roundabout near the church in Szówsko, where you should take the first exit. Ahead of you is Sobiecin, and after it Surochów. In this second village, stick to the main road, which at 6 km into your tour, takes a sharp turn to the right, heading south. As you exit the village, you will cross the railway tracks near industrial plants. To your right, the panorama of the San Valley stretches out, with numerous oxbow lakes and the ponds that remain after them.

    Soon you will reach Wietlin. The village features an interesting religious building located in the centre – originally a Uniate church, now an ecumenical church. The structure is clearly divided into three parts: a women's gallery, the main nave, and the sanctuary. Continue on the main road heading generally southeast. You will then come to a crossroads hidden in an avenue of trees. Turn right, in the opposite direction to the signpost indicating Bobrówka. You will know you are on the right track when you pass a Neo-Gothic Marian chapel dating from 1884. It turns out that the avenue of trees you are riding through outlines the palace road! While the palace itself is currently a social welfare facility, it is worth taking a moment to appreciate its symmetrical form with a mansard roof and a large terrace supported by four columns of the portico. Continuing towards the centre of the village of Wysocko, you will encounter another church that has been converted from a Greek Catholic church. Pay attention to its three-part structure, delicate Neo-Baroque stucco work, wooden turrets with small domes, and a massive bell tower. After leaving the village, you will come to a fork near the banks of the San River after about 1.8 km - turn left to follow the riverbank shrubs and reach the right-bank part of Radymno. Head toward the centre, turning right at the last intersection, and cross the river using the bridge. From the bridge, you will have a broad view of the San River valley and its calm riverbed.

    Entering Radymno, you may decide to take a rest by the reservoir. At 20 kilometres in, you have honestly earned it. If you wish to continue, go along the road on the dam by the reservoir and along the Rada river, then turn onto Kościuszki Street. From there, turn left onto Słowackiego Street, which will lead you to the town square, which has retained much of its Art Nouveau charm from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries and also points to the town's historical significance as an important trading post. Exit the square to the northwest via Mickiewicza Street. Crossing the path of road no. 94, exercise particular caution. It is worth stopping for a moment at the small cemetery, where there is a military section from World War I. Unfortunately, you can also find Polish names there. After 1.5 kilometres, you will reach the village of Ostrów. Descend from the low hill by the cemetery road and go straight ahead. Continuing through the fields, you will encounter two chapels – one whitewashed and one brick – and finally arrive at the village of Łowce. At the first intersection, stay on the right side, and also turn right at the church, beginning the climb up the hill. Along the way, you will pass a junction with a field road and a cross – go straight past them, and then turn left onto a narrow asphalt road next to the high-voltage poles. After another 200 metres, turn right, after 300 metres turn left, and head northwest to reach Morawska. In the village, do not turn off the main road – after passing a small bridge, continue straight up a gentle incline. At 35 kilometres into the route, you will pass a small forest on your left – you can stop there to honour the memory of the National Army soldiers who were shot here by the Germans in 1944. At the end of the road, turn sharply to the left. You are entering the outskirts of Jarosław. At the first roundabout in the city, take the second exit onto Strzelecka Street. At the next roundabout, turn right onto Pawłosiowska Street (sign for Jarosław). Next, after the underpass beneath the railway tracks, turn right onto Brzostków Street, and from there turn sharply right onto Jana Pawła II Street. Continuing straight ahead, and straight at the last roundabout, you will arrive at the market square.
